Breakfast (pancakes and sausages) and then some free time for leaders – we played KanJam, which is a frisbee based game. Then we had our last leaders meeting – so sad.
Lunch was pizza, then no siesta – right to afternoon merit badges because at 2:30 was…..
LAND AND SEA GAMES!!!!
Each troop participates in about 10 games on the Athletics field then 10 more at the waterfront. We teamed up with Troop 12, also out of Milford, since we only had about 15 or so kids each.
Team InterTrail (we are at International Campsite, they are at Trail) did well at the land games, placing in most of the events. Noah participated in the frisbee relay, helping to nab our second place seat.
Sea games were a little more interesting for me – I signed up for the “Scoutmaster Splash,” which is basically a fancy way of saying belly flop. I went first, which apparently is not a good idea, since you maybe give other people ideas…. Anyway, I’m still a little red and I almost lost a contact during the leap. Oh, and I placed second.
Noah helped with the “Sandwich Relay” – using the three levels of swimming areas, the scouts take parts to make a sandwich and them assemble them – and someone gets to “eat” the results. I did it last year and it’s kinda gross, but not the worst thing in the world.
After dinner – lemon chicken with rice and broccoli – we were disappointed by dessert: ice cream sandwiches. Normally dessert is individual cherry pies, and the mini pie plates get used as kazoos to drive most of the adults a little crazy… The staff seemed a little surprised as well, up until they started trying to use sandwich wrappers as kazoos….
After dinner we had some time before the closing campfire. Skits, all of them “dad jokes” (aka groaners), songs and a nice closing song by the staff.
At our campsite, the boys made s’mores and prepared for our trip home.
